Professor Eng Lo
Professor of Neurology and Radiology
Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard Medical School, Boston, USA
Plenary talk title:
Translational mechanisms for injury and repair in the CNS
Dr Lo received a BS in engineering at Yale, a PhD in biophysics from Berkeley, and completed a neuroscience fellowship at Stanford. In 1991, Dr. Lo joined the faculty of MGH where he is currently Professor of Radiology and Neuroscience at Harvard. Dr. Lo's work is focused on experimental and translational research in stroke, traumatic brain injury and neurodegeneration. Tools in his lab comprise a mix of molecular and cell biology, in vivo pharmacology, and in vivo imaging. The Lo lab collaborates widely within and outside of MGH in order to dissect mechanisms of injury and repair in the CNS.
